PIMBA CROWNS 2014 CHAMPIONS
PIMBA is proud to congratulate EACH of the 14 participating member bands that participated in its 2014 Championships at Penn-Trafford HS on Saturday, November 1.

Even with temperatures at the start of the show in the mid 40’s that dropped to the high 30's by the end of evening, the bands displaced incredible perseverance in their performances before the equally tenacious, extremely supportive audiences. Bravo to ALL bands, staffs and directors along with the parent and family supporters!

PIMBA thanks the Penn-Trafford Band Parents and director David Cornelius for their organization, hospitality for the bands and judges, and tremendous efforts throughout a long, cold day.
